Words are few, thoughts are deep,
memories of you we will always keep.
In tears we saw you suffer,
we watched you fade away,
our hearts were almost broken
you fought so hard to stay.
But when we saw you sleeping
so peaceful free of pain
we could not wish you back to suffer once again.
We sat beside your bedside
our hearts were crushed and sore
we did our duty to the end
‘till we could do no more.
Your presence we miss
your memory we treasure
loving you always
forgetting you never.
Sad are the hearts that love you
silently tears will fall
living our lives without you
is the saddest part of all.
Our family chain is broken
nothing feels the same
but as God takes us one by one
Our chain will link again.
Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, February 15, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. at The Gathering Place – Slave Lake
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Landon Persson Memorial Fund.
